The fashion picked up on the fall theme pulling out the red tones of foliage as a model sashayed down the runway in a vibrant red floor-length coat. The red hues continued and slowly transitioned into graphic printed, color blocked, and structured cocktail dresses that were expertly tailored. Liu’s designs all featured intricate and unexpected details elevating each look such as a “pop-art” anime detailed collar peeking out of a black double-breasted pea coat. Looks included vibrant silk scarves and bold hued shoes by Liliana Shoes that accentuated the versatility of Dan Liu’s designs.
The evening ended with a true surprise for the audience complete with a finale tribute to George Michael where the designer himself sang “Kissing a Fool” while a modern interpretive dancer in a morph costume covered in autumn leaves danced around the runway in true theatrical fashion.
Notable attendees included Dorothy Wang and Bianca Espada from The Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, Jersey Shore’s Sammi Giancola. Miss USA – Deshuana Barber, Miss Universe – Iris Mittenaere, and Serbian Singer Didi J.
